Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation

If your crawl space is not insulated, fills with water when it rains, or has structural problems, we can help. The crawl space is a vital part of your home, but it is often neglected. For your crawl space to optimally perform it should be encapsulated so there is a barrier between the interior space and the ground below. The exposed wood beams should be free of any signs of rot or mold and the floor joists should be level with no signs of sagging.

Ideally, the crawl space should also be insulated, this will help with air quality and overall home efficiency. The crawl space shouldn’t have any signs of moisture as even the slightest amount of water can lead to mold growth, rot, and mildew. To ensure the long-term health of your home and to get rid of existing crawl space issues call or click today!

Job Stories From Clarence, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Clarence, NY

This homeowner in Clarence, NY, called in because they were getting water in their basement that leaked from various cracks along their basement wall.

Basement Waterproofing in Clarence, NY.

Bill, a homeowner in Clarence, New York, had been grappling with a persistent basement water issue for far too long. Every heavy rain or snowmelt brought water intrusion into his basement, causing damage and creating an overall frustrating environment. Bill decided it was time to put an end to this problem and reached out to Frank's Basement Systems for a waterproofing solution. After a thorough assessment of his basement, the team recommended a comprehensive waterproofing plan tailored to Bill's specific needs. 

To effectively manage water intrusion, Frank's Basement Systems installed a ProSump system in Bill's basement. The ProSump is a high-capacity sump pump designed to handle excess water and keep the basement dry. It comes with a durable pump and an airtight lid to prevent moisture from returning to the basement. The team installed 50 feet of perforated pipe to create an interior drainage system. This system was strategically placed to capture and redirect water away from the basement, ensuring that moisture would no longer be a problem.

Bill's basement underwent a remarkable transformation. What was once a perpetually damp and troublesome space was now a dry and secure environment. Bill no longer had to dread rainy days or worry about the consequences of water damage.

Basement Waterproofing in Clarence, NY.

Joe, a homeowner in Clarence, NY, had been grappling with water intrusion issues in his basement. Concerned about potential water damage and the inconvenience of power outages affecting his sump pump, he knew it was essential to find a reliable solution to address these concerns. On the scheduled day, a team of experienced professionals from Frank's Basement Systems arrived at Joe's residence to inspect his basement. After a thorough evaluation, the team presented Joe with a tailored solution to address his specific needs. They recommended a combination of solutions to effectively prevent water from entering his basement and ensure the reliability of his sump pump during power outages. To address existing cracks in the basement walls and prevent water intrusion, the team proposed the application of Xypex Crack Repair. Xypex is a specialized waterproofing solution designed to seal cracks and prevent water penetration, reinforcing the structural integrity of the walls.

To ensure the uninterrupted operation of his sump pump even during power outages, the team suggested the installation of 1 ProSeries Battery Backup. This reliable backup power system would provide peace of mind by keeping the sump pump operational during electrical failures, safeguarding Joe's basement against flooding. With the installation complete, Joe's basement was now effectively waterproofed, and his sump pump had a reliable backup power source. He was delighted with the prompt and professional service he received from Frank's Basement Systems.

Basement Waterproofing in Clarence, NY.

Peter, a homeowner in Clarence, NY, had been dealing with persistent water infiltration issues in his basement. Concerned about potential water damage and the risk of mold growth, he knew it was essential to find a reliable solution to address the problem. On the scheduled day, a team of experienced professionals from Frank's Basement Systems arrived at Peter's residence to inspect his basement. They meticulously examined the areas prone to water infiltration and identified potential entry points for water. To create a moisture-resistant barrier and prevent water from seeping through the walls, the team proposed the installation of 68 feet of CleanSpace wall system. CleanSpace is a high-performance vapor barrier designed to seal the basement off from the outside environment, preventing moisture, mold, and other pollutants from entering. To provide additional protection to the top of the basement walls, the team recommended the installation of 47 feet of WallCap. WallCap serves as a cap to protect the walls and also directs any water intrusion into the drainage system. To effectively manage moisture and prevent water accumulation, the team proposed the installation of 273 feet of CleanSpace and 273 feet of Drainage Matting XL. This combination would create a reliable drainage system within the basement, directing any water to the appropriate channels.

For efficient water removal, the team suggested the installation of 1 SmartSump, a powerful and reliable sump pump system designed to keep the basement dry. Additionally, to collect and direct water from the perimeter of the basement, they recommended the installation of 68 feet of SmartPipe. To further enhance the exterior drainage system, the team proposed the installation of 1 RainChute EZ, which would help direct water away from the foundation, reducing the risk of water infiltration.

With the installation complete, Peter's basement was now fortified against potential water infiltration and damage. He was delighted with the prompt and professional service he received from Frank's Basement Systems.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Clarence, NY.

Katie had two separate crawl spaces in her basement that were attached to her garage. Every few days, Katie would come home and see water seeping into the crawl spaces! Unsure of where this water was leaking from, Katie gave the experts at Frank's Basement Systems a call for a free inspection and estimate. Rick was on the scene in no time and knew that a crawl space encapsulation would do the trick. 

The installation process was quick, with the help of some drainage matting and our CleanSpace Crawlspace Liner. Now, Katie can rest assured knowing her crawl spaces will remain water free for up to 25 years - under warranty!

SaniDry Sedona Installation in Clarence, NY.

Paul J. never thought that the crawl space in his basement would produce enough mold to affect the rest of his home. After a year or two without any maintenance, however, the smell and symptoms of mold began to present themselves. Unsure how to fix this issue, Paul gave Frank's Basement Systems a call!

Christian Nati inspected Paul's basement and recommended a SaniDry Sedona be installed immediately. The SaniDry Sedona dries the air in any crawl space making it smell better and reduces the chance of mold growth. The Sedona filters particles out of the air including mold spores and dust down to 2 microns in size. By constantly moving the air around, the SaniDry Sedona will not only dry your entire crawl space but ensures your crawl space stays dry.

Paul can now be sure that he will never see mold spores in his crawl space again.

Full Basement Waterproofing and Crawlspace Repair in Clarence, NY.

Mark L's basement had a long history of water. After an extensive internet search, he gave Frank's Basement Systems a call for a free estimate on a waterproofing his basement. After inspecting Mark's basement. it was determined that a full perimeter system would be best.

The system included WaterGuard interior drainage system around the perimeter of the basement at the base of the walls. The next component is the Clean Space Wall System paneling on all the walls to stop any moisture from permeating the walls. A SuperSump Plus sump pump system with a battery backup sump pump to keep the basement dry even in a power outage, a SmartSump, and two Rainchute EZ drainage systems were installed to ensure all water entering the basement is ejected far enough away from the structural components of Mark's house!

Mark L. also needed some work done on the crawl space in his basement. Our team was not only able to clean up all dirt and debris, but also installed a SmartPipe along the perimeter of the wall in order to prevent any leaks from occurring!

Wet walls in part of unfinished basement
Project Location: Clarence, NY
Drywall cracks are present in various ceiling and wall locations in the main floor (ranch). House built in 1950's. There is one crack on a hallway ceiling that is approximately 3ft long and runs approx 6" down the wall as well. There are signs of previous surface repair in that area and it is the only ceiling in the home that is popcorn (coverup?). We want to see if this is a cosmetic issue due or if it is something more serious. Overall, each crack we see looks like normal settling but the fact they are in so many locations and also the larger ceiling crack is why we are reaching out to you for professional advice.

Hello...My cinder block basement walls have some issues. In some spots they are fine. In some spots they have light crumble areas that probably need light patching. In another spot there are bigger areas of very crumbly cinder blocks and some have holes through them. We do not get water in our basement...but obviously the walls have some issues. I would like you to look at them and see what your suggest. Thank you...Dan

Basement wall (cinder block) is bowing inward due to excessive outside water and poor drainage conditions. The home was built in the 40's and the wall in question has the septic and sump pipes integrated into the walls (if that helps).
